A light supper and discussion session follows each film.

our next Event -

Valerie Jaye Hall

Join us for the screening of Monsieur Lahzar - A beautiful French/Canadian movie that explores the building of relationships and trust between students and teachers and the need for children to have adult role models.

Using sensitivity and humour, this multi-award winning film, set in Montreal, will move and stimulate you. The main character, Monsieur Lazhar, a former teacher, is an immigrant  appointed to a school to replace a member of staff who died in tragic circumstances. Students and staff are traumatised by the experience and are unaware of  Monsieur Lazhar's painful past.  This beautiful story revolves around the need to build trust and relationships as part of a healing process.  

Light refreshments and a discussion will follow the screening of the movie.

Sunday 24 June  2018

Almost 40 people attended the showing of Crossing Delancey with our Boomers' Film Group on Sunday.  

All those present agreed that the film, ably introduced by Leo Goorevich, was joyful and the kind of film we should show from time to time.  

Discussion continued for some time over light refreshments organised by Susan Levy.  Gwen Harrison, NSTE President, drew the lucky door prizes, the first of which, a can of pickled cucumbers (to honour the movie) was won by Barbara Woolf and the second, the DVD of crossing Delancey, was won by Meira Marks. 
Be sure to keep the date free for our next film afternoon on 26 August at 4:00 pm!

The Boomers Film Group had a very successful film afternoon on Sunday 10 December with more than 30 people attending to watch the movie Walk on Water followed by a lively discussion led by Netzer and Communal Shaliach, Dudu Gottlib.  The film was both entertaining and thought provoking and it was agreed that Dudu's input enhanced the experience for all of us, as evidenced by the continuing discussion over refreshments.
